5 July 2011

Hi family!
I hope you're all doing really well.
It's been a really long, really tough, and really frustrating week, so there's not a lot to write about.
Almost every appointment we had this week cancelled, so we spent the vast majority of our days walkin' talkin' and knockin'. It happens, so I'm not worried about, but it's just not as fun as having lots of teaching in a week.
Last Tuesday night West and Ceyda gave us a giant handful of MREs. They are really cool, and pretty yummy. Some people don't like them, but I think they're pretty good. They also let us borrow their tennis stuff so we could play in the morning while they're gone to Washington and Florida.
In church on Sunday, there were a lot of people bearing testimony about how our country is the greatest in the history of the world and that our military has God behind them, and how our leaders are inspired. Almost no one mentioned Christ until one of the stake presidency members got up and told people to bear their testimonies about Christ and the Gospel. Then one of the people who came up later mentioned in their testimony that Americans eat more hot dogs on the 4th of July than any other day of the year. Then Elder Barlow and Elder Snedaker got up and finished the meeting off with some real testimonies. In the closing prayer was mentioned "..and please help the political leaders of our nation make better decisions...". It took all Elder Fackrell and myself could to not burst out laughing in the middle of the prayer. Needless to say, it was an interesting sacrament meeting.
I hope you all have a great week!
Love you all
Elder La Follette
